Gear Spotlight: Bell Racing Helmet and HANS Bag Backpack Combo

Driver Gear, Reviews I By Winding Road Staff I April 10, 2015
Looking for an easier way to haul your headgear around at the track? A bag specifically designed to carry your helmet might seem like a bit of a luxury item, but keep in mind that a drop from shoulder height onto asphalt has been known to put cracks in helmets – damage severe enough that it means you may need get another helmet if you want to go racing.

To make matters worse, helmets are an oblong shape that makes carrying them more precarious than it really should be, and of course one of your hands is also occupied carrying your helmet instead of other gear whenever you have it with you and you're not wearing it.
Not only do helmet bags help protect your helmet from damage if it falls or bounces around during transport, they also eliminate the need to carry the helmet in hand, allowing you to carry more gear without the fear of dropping this particularly expensive piece of safety gear.
The Bell Racing Helmet and HANS Bag Backpack Combo features numerous side pockets, a removable top section to store extra shields, a sturdy rubberized handle and plenty of internal padding to keep your gear well protected and maintain comfort while toting your equipment around. The Bell Racing Helmet and HANS Bag Backpack Combo is also designed to carry your head and neck restraint, whether it's a HANS device, Necksgen REV, Hybrid or other device.
Additionally, Stilo, Arai and low-profile Simpson helmets will fit in the Bell Racing Helmet and HANS Bag Backpack Combo with a Necksgen REV or HANS Sport 3.
